I just posted this in the Chit Chat forum, butt thought a direct line to you guyz would be ok!
Coni just called with GREAT news, to say that she is finally on her way home!! Currently, she has been staying at Don and Bean Arthur's home while recuperating from the latest round of surgery. Had thought about flying back home using MedJet, butt they require several refueling stops along the way, so instead, she and Graham are goin' non-stop flight to Seattle and will be there tomorrow.
She wanted everyone to know how much she appreciates all the thoughts, the prayers, the candles, the cards - just everythang that has helped pull her through this crisis. And of course, to let all the folks who know she and Graham, that Graham is the rock who puts the smile on her face and takes her stress down a notch. (I think she's gonna keep him!!!). The surgery (done by a Doc and staff who apparently have done upwards of 1,300 of 'em) wuz so well done, that the Doc has scheduled a CT-scan for three months from now, just as a leetle second opinion that all is well and she won't have to endure any of this again - ever!!
She mentioned that the huge cards that came from the IBA group in Jacksonville were truly wonderful and she has read every signature several times (btw - Jeff Mitchell, your pen run outta ink?!?!
). I told her you and I had breakfast together when you made the run to FL, so she knows you went there, and thanks you for your kind words and for forwarding the news to the forums - the news from Don Arthur, after her surgery procedure.
So there you have it folks - she's goin' home. Beat the crap outta that evil cancer dood; all with the help and prayers and well wishes of her best friends in the world. Thanks, everyone.
